University of North Texas Health Science Center Advances Forensic Research by Investing in Semiconductor DNA Sequencing Technology
Date:6/20/2012

CARLSBAD, Calif., June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation – (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced a collaboration with the University of North Texas Health Science Center's  Institute of Applied Genetics utilizing the company's Ion Personal Genome Machine® (PGM™) system to further their research, development, and implementation of best technologies in forensic DNA analyses.

The Ion PGM™ Sequencer does not rely on light for sequencing, but rather translates chemical sequencing information directly into digital form by using semiconductor technology.  The result – sequencing that is simpler, faster, accurate, and more cost effective, than any other technology currently available.

"These are exciting times," said Dr. Bruce Budowle, Executive Director, Institute of Applied Genetics at the UNT Health Science Center.  "With the introduction of Life Technologies' Ion PGM™ Sequencer, application-oriented laboratories now have the sequencing power that has been the domain of large genome centers."  Added Budowle, "Massively parallel sequencing using an IonPGM™ Sequencer holds promise of advancing analyses to address forensic questions previously not believed feasible."

Both Drs. Budowle and Arthur Eisenberg, Professor and Chairman, Dept. of Forensic and Investigative Genetics at the UNT Health Science Center, will evaluate the use of the Ion PGM™ Sequencer for its utility and develop protocols on the system for a wide array of foren
